the motive there is not clear. and a fox urgent now. for the first time tonight, united nations ambassador susan rice is fighting back against her critics. first the back story here. she went on five sunday morning talk shows days after the attack on the consulate in benghazi that killed our ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. and said it was due to anger over that film insulting islam. we now know that was wrong. u.s. officials acknowledged it was a coordinated terror attack. republic lawmakers said ambassador rice was either deliberately misleading or quote incompetent. just minutes ago she spoke at the u.n. and took those critics to task. listen. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> last week
was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i
israeli positions, some being fired toward israel. >> it's not as if there are united nations personnel monitoring this border crossing if you will. >> no. it's a very surreal system where you actually don't run into any human beings for several steps of the process. it's all done through surveillance cameras, through doors being electronically opened for you and gradually, you know, the closer you get with each door that you go through you're one step closer toward israel and one step, you know -- they've examined you one step further. it's a fascinating system to see up close. >> yeah. at some point -- and you were there for three, four, five days? >> right. >> you must have been scared out of your mind. >> you know, you're definitely in a heightened state of awareness. i wouldn't say scared because i've been in a lot of these areas over the years. but it's always shocking to see the conditions that people are forced to live in in a war zone. and to see what life is like for somebody and who's the only difference between them and myself is the accident of birth and what zip code they

met with the jordanian foreign minister and the secretary general of the united nations today, with the united states secretary of state, hillary clinton. although we are not on the ground in the gaza strip, we have been very active for all parties, including hamas. >> the problem has not been, has at any time, that the palestinian authority, when it comes to gaza, is irrelevant, and mahmoud abbas has really had no say in this at the moment, and that's a problem going forward in the bigger picture of palestinian unity, is it not? is this an opportunity in some ways for hamas and fatah, palestinian authority, to make up, to move forward with some sort of sense of unity? >> well, first of all, president abbas is the elected president of the palestinian people everywhere. he has not only electriced president of palestinians in the west bank. he was elected in 2005 in free democratic elections. stoo hamas is running gaza. let's be real about that. >> what i'm trying to tell you -- nobody can deny that we have political differences with hamas. our top priority right now and it has
collins, but clearly it is her responsibility as an ambassador to the united nations to do much more than that. >> before anyone can make an intelligent and decision, we need to do a lot more. to this date, we do not have the fbi interviews of the survivors from after the attack. we do not have the basic information about what was said about the night of the attack as of this date. i remember the episode pretty well. our democratic friends felt like they did not have the information needed to make the alteration to make about john bolton. democrats dug in their heels and a they were not going to consider the nomination until they would get basic answers to their concerns. the concerns i have far greater today there and they were before and we are not even close to getting a basic cancer. >> i have many more questions that need answering. >> that was about 10 minutes ago after meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice, mentioned as a possible replacement for outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. coming up, more discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff this timeless and a majority wit

tuned, as they say. joining us now, former u.s. ambassador not united nations, john bolten, andrew mccarthy, former federal prosecutor who convicted the blind shake, and the author of "spring fever." great to have you both here. andrew, your reaction to what is playing out in the nation's capital. this is the nation's capital -- capital of a superpower; right? >> so they say. a lot of misspeaking going on, it would appear. you know, look, it's been obvious from the start here that they tried to play out the idea of this video nobody saw of this being the cause of the atrocity of what happened in benghazi in which four, including our ambassador, were killed. it's important to get to the bottom of it, and getting to the bottom of it, a comedy of error, should not obscure the fact this is a major advocation by the commander in chief who did not take action in a seven and a half hour siege with assets in place he could have used to protect americans, and we have this inexplicable result of americans being killed, precisely because of the way the president handled it. lou: ambassador, this
diplomatic issues. in 1971, the united nations in 1969. they were in the area and we have been re-integrating everything. for the first 75 years, we have never received the people's republic of china and the u.n. report -- they changed this position on the island. and to me, i don't want to get into that too many details. frankly, this is not the heart of the issue. china is trying to advance. there is an issue with japan. from japan to taiwan, the philippines, this is from the viewpoint of china. china has openly expressed their views on this in maritime security. and those are part of the reality. so this is a kind of comprehensive strategy to advance. >> that is an important point. what you're basically saying is that this is about power and the power -- china is clearly becoming more powerful. you are seeing lines being challenged. i remember talking to george soros once after he broke the back of england -- i'm sorry, broke the bank of england. what he saw as a hedge fund manager basically drove so hard against the wind that fundamentally the institutional power on the bank o
undermine any increases. and now, palestine. thursday, united nations will vote on whether to upgrade status to nonmember state. it's also a move opposed by the united states and israel. now, here's the headline from an op-ed "the new york times." support palestinian state hood. that was not written by a palestinian, but by an israeli. a former deputy foreign minister of israel and architect of the oslo -- to be exact. the question remains, the israel survive as a jewish state if it does not agree to a two-state exclusion? particularly one that partitions to a holy city. jeremy joins me along with morton klein, president of the zionist organization of america. i want to read more from that op-ed "the new york times" today. and continued to write because mr. abbas of the plo has committed to the principles of nonviolenc nonviolence, the bid is the only way of putting palestinians back on the agenda. the israeli foreign ministry is threatening to nullify the oslo accor accords. what's your response? >> well, i wish that were true. in fact, for 19 years now, abbas promotes hatred and violence a
hurricane sandy as a poster child for global warming as the united nations and al gore is now doing, that makes as little sense as you can possibly imagine. we are at 30 or 40 years historic lows in activity and going the longest period since the civil war since a major hurricane to hit the united states and if anything, it would prevent atlantic hurricane from making landfall and the world meet logical society said this is no evidence of hurricane footprint in human activity so fore that to be a poster child they are devoid the science, if we have quotes from globe warming activists waiting, saying we need a disaster, using words we are "cheering them" we have to wish for a lot horrid things in order to get the public alarmed like they tried to do with hurricane katrina. >>neil: the wind at their back, comments from new york governor cuomo, this is indisputable proof of dangers of community change and what happens, so, when they use american politicians to make their point, is it the next step to get more american money to rectify this point? >>guest: what they trying to do and pre

.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice defends herself about comments about benghazi, responding directly to her harshest critics. >>> giving thanks following superstorm sandy. trying to lift the siepirits of those left with nothing. >>> plus this. >>> good morning to you. happy thanksgiving. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for spending at least part of your holiday with us. for the first time in more than a week, it has been a relatively quiet day across israel and fwa gaza. the cease fire is holding. at the border, israeli troops are packing up after spending one final night there. israeli forces says when the cease fire started, three rockets were fired into israel. two hit open areas and the third was intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. if everything remains this relatively quiet until 2:00 eastern this afternoon, the gaza border crossings will open. rallies opened in the streets as they celebrated what they call a victory over israel. the prime minister says he's dedicated the victory to that man, ahmed al ja'abari, killed in that air strike. as you kn
egypt is better off with morsi and the muslim brotherhood. ambassador to the united nations john bolton joins us and joins us about this time every sunday. good morning ambassador. >> good morning. glad to be with you. >> as always. he calls what morsi did an unprecedented assault. others say the military should move in. what do you think could happen? >> i think the turmoil could well increase. morsi and the muslim brotherhood see it as not ex em player of fair minded group of judges but as the last strong hold of the mubarek era. it was the judges who through out the elections that had elected a parliament that was comprised of 75 percent supporters of the muslim brotherhood and even more extreme parties. morsi was trying to prevent the constitution writing exercise from being dismissed by the judg judges. in that sense this is a life and death struggle between what's left of the mubarek hold overs and that is key. from there the united states because of decades of ex tense i have military aid still has a lot of judges that's where we exert is it to get it back in control. that's wher

is formerly the u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. it's nice to have you with us, sir. >> good morning, soledad. >> so yesterday we were reporting at this hour that there were reports that the aggression would stop within hours. then there reports that there would be a 24-hour calm period, that came from a senior hamas official. then we know that hillary clinton was in the region, going from meeting to meeting with netanyahu, and heading eventually to meet with mohamed mursi. now we have this violence with a bus. has the window of opportunity, which it seemed like the secretary was trying to exploit, or leverage, has that closed, do you think, with this explosion? >> first of all, this was a reprehensible terrorist attack. but i don't think it closes the window. you've got these very serious talks ongoing about a long-term solution to things like, you know, border security, the rocket attacks, and a lot of international pressure brought to bear by both arab countries, the united states, and the u.n. so, no, i think that this represents an escalation, but i
that were articulated by the united nations, that is recognizing my country to exist. abandoning terrorism and violence, then the negotiations could begin. but on the contrary, i think in many ways hamas is stuck in a very extreme position. and the evidence we saw for that today. we had the bombing in tel aviv on the bus. and hamas praised that. they welcomed that. they said that was legitimate. and so as long as hamas is doing that sort of thing it is difficult to be optimistic. but if they do change, if they do moderate. if they fundamentally reserve some of their very hard line positions, the door can be opened. >> i mean, do you accept, though, obviously in the last eight or nine days, 30 times as many palestinians have been killed as israelis? so clearly, there is bloodshed on both sides. and israel is not blameless here, either. >> reporter: i think the most important issue here is though, what we're we doing? i mean, this whole operation was not to take territory or change regimes or something grandiose like that. our operation was purely defensive. our goal was to protect our peopl
.n., that is the date of the so-called partition of palestine resolution, dating back to 1947 by united nations. that has symbolic meaning as well. and the israelis, not only the israelis have opposed it, but the united states has opposed it. and it will pass most likely because this is a general assembly issue not a security council issue. to but the united states -- -- they are trying to make a point by retaliating in some big way. that will have a cost for the palestinian authority. what does that mean? hamas will emerge as an even bigger winner. there will say, look at what he is getting you have got to vote, but what good did that to do? our way is the best day. get missiles. so that is the political dilemma for the united states. host: leila on our line for independents, go ahead. caller: my comment is, you always have to negotiate with people. when negotiated not only with friends, but with enemies. the enemies have to be [indiscernible] what we initially wanted to do when we sent the president oversees. -- once and for all. guest: hamas is delivering in gazgaza. my own position, just fo
